Tuscola Conservation District


Our Mission

The Tuscola Conservation District is committed to assisting the residents of Tuscola County manage our Natural Resources in a sustainable way through education and implementation of conservation practices.


On March 13, 1943 several landowners in Elkland, Elmwood, Ellington, Almer, Juniata, and Indianfields township petitioned for the creation of the Tuscola Conservation District. The first board of directors included: Dorr Perry, Erwin Zemke, R. Lester Hill, Bruce Brown, and Walter Goodall. On February 4, 1944 Dean Gordon became the first Federal employee. Today the district has four employees that include: District Administrator, CREP Technician, Ground Water Technician/Education Coordinator, and part-time Administrative Assistant.

Your Natural Resources are our priority. The District Staff and Board of Directors would like to invite you to take advantage of the many programs and products available from the District. We are located at the USDA Service Center at 1075 Cleaver Road in Caro, Michigan. Our phone number is 989-673-8174, extension 3. Our regular office hours are from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, except for Federal Holidays.
